The holiday season will inevitably look different this year, but the cherished tradition of Christmas and Candlelight returns to Historic Washington State Park this December!
Join Historic Washington State Park for the 34th Annual Christmas and Candlelight which will be held December 5 & 12, 2020 from 5pm to 8pm.
You and your family will be in awe of the beauty that candlelit streets provide as you stroll through the historic town. Decorations, music, and more will set the mood for your historic holiday experience. The homes of yesterday will be adorned with 19th century decorations and the streets will be lit by thousands of luminaries lighting your way.
You can enjoy a meal at William’s Tavern Restaurant which will be open from 11am to 8pm with a set limited menu. To accommodate more people, the restaurant will also be serving at the WPA Gym from 5pm to 8pm. Cash only accepted at the Gym.
Due to Arkansas Health Department restrictions, no in-house tours will be available. All can enjoy music and 19th century Christmas scenes throughout the park at no charge. The visitor center in 1874 Courthouse and the Gift Shop will be open from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. Face mask will be required to enter the visitor center and restaurant.
Begin your own Christmas tradition by joining Arkansas’s Premier Historic State Park only eight miles off I30 from Hope Arkansas. For more information contact Historic Washington at 870-983-2684.
